InspirationFX: Like a Rock

Like a Rock

by: Lee Metsalo


Yes, I like rocks.   They’re all unique and attractive in their own ways. Some are pretty colours.  Some have patterns in them like paintings. When I need a break from the computer, I visit this section of the store:  Stones
The rocks just need a simple setting to let them shine.  You can dress them up sparkly or masculine by adding a few beads on the sides.
Simple to construct: 
Pinch the bail into the hole at the top of the pendant (or use a headpin with a stone bead if that is your favourite rock today). 
  • Link this to the lattice tube bail with a jump ring. 
  • String the whole assembly onto your leather cord. 
  • Use the twin link connector to bring the two cords together. 
  • Trim the leather to the appropriate length and glue the end caps on. 
  • Once the glue is dry link the lobster clasp to one side with a jump ring, and add a solo jump ring to the other side for the lobster clasp to have something to grab onto to close. 
Tomorrow?  A new rock!
